Not great video, but kind of neat to see.

Do you think the Gracies would ever show a video of them losing?

It is interesting to see how much martial arts have changed since that time. I find it so hard to believe that ground work wasn't a part of the many of the martial arts being trained and that it took people liket he Gracies to show the world what effective grappling skills were. You would think that it would be common knowledge as many fights actually went to the ground. And for people today not training ground work in self defense systems; I just shake my head.

the only video that they showed of them losing was the Helio Kimura fight. But the commentary was all excuses & comments that avoided the fact that Helio lost and had his shoulder dislocated, which eventually lead to people naming that technique the Kimura. The Gracies contributed a lot to the MA community and are wonderful ground technicians but I hate how they always make excuses.

Maybe they can splice in a clip of Kyra losing at Dance Dance Revolution at the local arcade. Then would you be satisfied?
